This holiday: Red, print & blue
With the flurry of holiday events in December, it's not practical for me (or for my wallet) to purchase a new dress for each outing. So, in comes what I like to call 'creative closeting'.
I've owned this dress for a couple years now (sale find at Zara in 2012) and re-purposed the garment by introducing prints and rich blues to the color palette. The silhouette and bright red color are traditional and classic (particularly for the holidays). Though my style has evolved over the years it is nice to be able to pull a dress out of my closet, add some blue, and make it anew.
